Volcano, pipeline, and a gorgeous day in Ecuador

As little as a year ago, at least two of this crew would have never imagined that they would be kayaking in Ecuador. They were still struggling to learn how to roll, catch eddies and stay rightside up. And then the next thing you know there you are–paddling rivers in an amazing place like Ecuador.

For many of us, such opportunities are the inspiration for kayaking. Your kayak becomes the vehicle–the motivation for exploring new rivers, new cultures, hanging out with new friends, and doing it in the middle of the winter when all your friends are shivering at home!!!

The week started out with everyone clean shaven, but all were so busy enjoying the river that little details went by the wayside!!

Enjoy all the photos of our New Year’s Eve trip. And a special thanks to Craig–who is guide amazing numero uno–and doing a great job learning how to put a video together that says more than words can:
